Treat Yourself to a Staycation

You work hard. You put in the hours at work or school and sometimes that gets tiring. You don’t need the summer to take a vacation, but you may need a sizeable amount of spending money to have the vacation you want. Vacations are expensive, there’s no way around that. In order to help you get the rest and relaxation you deserve, we’re going to share a great alternative to an expensive vacation: a staycation! In this week’s Nantucket Gate Blog, we’ve got a shortlist of ways to have a great staycation.


Travel is expensive, and oftentimes, you’ll end up sacrificing a more luxurious living accommodation in order to maximize your budget for activities. With a staycation, you don’t have the expense of airfare, leaving you more money to spend on proper luxurious accommodations. Splurge and treat yourself to a nicer hotel with pampering amenities!


When you’re the local of a city, you find the restaurants you like and frequent them often. There are plenty of restaurants in your local area, but you’ve probably not tried all of them, so use your staycation as an opportunity to branch out and try something new! Choose a cuisine that you’ve never had before or a different restaurant of your favorite cuisine. Yelp and Google Reviews can be your best friend, so use those wisely!


Vacations are a time to try new things and do some activities! Explore the city you call home by finding some fun things to do as though you were a visitor or tourist. You’ll be surprised how many fun things there are to do here in Tacoma, WA. Toss out that local resident mentality and try to imagine that you’re visiting your city for the first time!
